The endorsement of the Duchess of Cambridge as the queen of the United Kingdom by the infamous and disgraced influencer Andrew Tate has sparked a reaction on social media.
Andrew Tate, who was born in the United States but raised in the United Kingdom, gained notoriety for his misogynistic statements online and was recently released from prison in Romania after serving time for sex trafficking charges.
Andrew Tate’s royal endorsement came in a tweet in which he joked about superimposing his face on King Charles III during the monarch-making ceremony held last Saturday.
However, the former “Big Brother UK” star quickly clarified that he was joking and that Kate Middleton should be the queen instead, citing her “Ice cold G vibes.”
Tate even included a photo of Princess Diana giving a mean mug to the camera, though it remains unclear if he was serious or not.
Tate’s suggestion comes at a time when the coronation of King Charles III is imminent. However, Tate’s tweet has drawn mixed reactions from social media users, with some agreeing with his idea and others criticizing him for his past actions and remarks.
Andrew Tate’s Controversial Past
Andrew Tate’s tweet has been met with mixed reactions due to his past controversies.
In addition to serving a three-month prison sentence for sex trafficking charges, Tate has been known to express misogynistic views on social media, leading some to consider him the poster child for “toxic masculinity.”
Moreover, Tate is currently under house arrest and faces new rape and abuse allegations from three women who used to work for him as webcam models between 2013 and 2016.
The women claim that Tate is abusive, coercive, and controlling and that his public statements about women are nothing more than a fantasy.
Despite these allegations, Tate has continued to post controversial content on social media, including a now-deleted TikTok video in which he defended Queen Elizabeth II from her critics following her death in September.
Reaction on Social Media
Tate’s tweet has sparked a reaction on social media, with some users expressing support for his endorsement of Kate Middleton as queen.
However, many others have criticized Tate for his past actions and statements.
Some have called for him to be banned from social media platforms, while others have questioned the legitimacy of his endorsement of the duchess.
Some Twitter users have also pointed out that Tate is not a citizen of the United Kingdom and therefore cannot vote in the country’s elections.
